Statement - March 2020

Due to the Covid 19 outbreak and following the government guidelines the committee have decided to cancel the upcoming talks for the coming months as so many of our members are in the “at risk” group. It is also quite possible that our meeting venue will be closed anyway

Update June 2020

Hopefully we will be able to re-commence during the Autumn, it will of course depend on the Covid 19 situation and the possibility of the lockdown continuing, especially if there is another “spike” with the virus. The committee will inform you as soon as we know it is safe to return.

In the meantime stay safe and do visit our new website.

At a special meeting of the committee held at John Hill's garden in glorious sunshine on Thursday, Update July 18th

It was agreed that the Historical Society be suspended until January 2021. This of course is due to Covid 19 and as most of us are of a certain age, care and safety measures must be taken. This may well change if the situation improves or even if it gets worse. The committee will be keeping you informed during the coming months. We have also agreed to cancel the annual dinner and the Christmas buffet.
